TY Webinars 2020-2021

 

The TY Picnic 2020

Over the first three weeks of September 2020 the PDST TY Team hosted three webinars for coordinators and teachers of TY. It was great to get the chance to explore the implications of the TY guidance document for coordinators' practice, to discuss the challenges faced by all coordinators and to hear about the approaches being used by different schools to ensure students experience a quality TY programme.

You'll find the array of slides, presentations and summarising documents on this page:
